On 5/14 East Pond is generally mixed with a hint of surface warming in the top 0.5 meters of the lake. The profile was taken at 3 PM so the warming is a normal daily event due to absorption of sunlight. The Secchi depth has deepened by 0.6 meters to 3. 5 meters in the last 11 days. This deepening is consistent with the fluorescence profile that shows significantly less chlorophyll in the top 2 meters.
Colby and UMO groups sampled both East and North Pond.
On 5/22 East Pond and North Ponds are mixed at 15 oC. The Secchi depth in East Pond has deepened by almost two meters to 5.4 meters in the last 8 days. This deepening is consistent with the fluorescence profile that shows significantly less chlorophyll above 4.5 meters.
